My PW in the first frame landed about 2m away from the 110m red flag I was aiming at.
but ok - let me upload my current swing and we can compare.

Sounds like you might be shanking the ball.
Yeah, one of the first things I learned after watching myself on video is how very similar all of the swings are. For example, you can hit the most perfect beautiful high draw to your target, followed by the ugliest shank, and if you look at each on video, more than likely to the untrained eye, they won't look any different.
So I think cipher is right ... everything that mvmac suggested will apply to you even though you didn't actually hit those shots in the videos poorly. (He's a really good teacher, so I'd pay close attention!) :)
Oh, and one more thing ... for somebody whos only been playing for ONE YEAR, that is a really good swing! Keep it up.
